I’m progressing well with the base tracks I’m putting together, but took a little detour tonight. Shortly after we recorded ‘The Unofficial National Anthem’, Sean wrote a song called ‘PKD dum dum‘, which had a set of pretty complex chords. Not unplayable, but certainly hard to commit to memory. I’ve been sitting on it for a while now, digging it out every once in a while to see if I can fit some structure to the chords, but it has always evaded me. I tried again tonight, not using the guitar as I would normally, but very slowly on the keyboard instead. What emerged was a dream-like track which wouldn’t seem entirely out of place in Twin Peaks. I love it when a song takes you somewhere you really didn’t expect!
